The National aquarium of Denmark – Den Blå Planet (The Blue Planet) – is a beautiful piece of architecture located just outside Copenhagen, not far from the airport. It’s super easy to reach, as the metro will take you here directly from Copenhagen city center.
The new aquarium opened in 2013, and it’s truly an amazing place for both kids and adults. It’s the biggest in Northern Europe, and besides being incredibly beautiful inside and outside it offers a lot of fun and exciting activities for children.
There are three main areas: Northern lakes and seas, Tropical lakes and rivers, and The Ocean. (This is where you’ll find the sharks). Don’t forget to also pay a visit to the super cute sea otters, which you’ll find outside the building.
